    Not sure he is one of our best in defence

    Id imagine Sione to the centres with Fitz back, Lino into 6 and Mann to the bench. Gavet very lucky to still be there

    As much as it sucks to say Ramien has been awful lately

    Yes, I was surprised to read that he would be dropped.

    He was far from our worst. Brown doesn’t like him though so if there was going to be changes he was always gonna go.

    We don't lose a lot running Levi at Hooker or Watson to be honest so not a big change. Plus Brown really doesn't like Levi it seems.

    Good to see Jsaf back again and Fitz back.

    I'll be going to the game this weekend so hopefully the team can compete for the 80 or it's going to be tough to watch.

    Levi's just about the most improved defender in the team.

    Really glad we extended Ramien before he's played a full season as some suggested we should. I'm sure he'll bounce back but his defence has been horrendous lately.

    Surely Ramien would be better than Mann and save a position change. Right side defence has not been fixed with Barnett in and new centre Moga/Hunt along with Lino, get Guerra in. No cover for Watson if he is injured or needs a break or others injured that he could cover, Levi should be bench, virtually Brown saying P off.
    Bottom line “not happy if that is team”, happy that Lino, Guerra and JSaf in but should have been for Mann, Buhrer and Gavet, along with Fitz in for Sione/Barnett to bench. Levi at worst should be bench.
    We obviously need to offload some players for next season but not at the cost of winning games and making semi’s etc.

    Stats???? Not sure they have the answers but if the team proposed at this stage has Levi out and no one covering Watson then we are in trouble. Levi is a better hooker than Watson, Watson is a live wire but his effort sometimes cloud his ability. Whoever plays 9 the other should be 14 along with the likes of Sione, JSaf and Ese’ese on bench.
    Fix right side by playing Guerra and Barnett plays left if Fitz is out otherwise fighting for bench spot with Sione

    We will have zero proper hookers in firstgrade and 3 in reserve grade.

    Speaking of stats our most penalised player ? Gavet ? Barnett ? It's Watson quite easily.

    How many times has Watson been in the sin bin? Genuine question, as I'd argue Gavet's regular binnings probably cost us more than Watson's trying too hard or his brain snaps, even if his penalty stats are higher.

    I was merely surprised that Watson was our most penalised player.

    Gavet should have been dropped over Ese. Gavet stood there and watched Benji score.
    Mann let a lot of guys run straight through the line the last two weeks.

    I hope Lino is goal kicker. Not bagging out Ponga but Lino is a better goal kicker and I'd preffer Ponga to have less to worry about.

    We also can't afford to be changing 5/8's every week. Brown needs to find a best 17 and stick with it. It was obvious the right edge wast use to defending togeather.

    these changes feel more like brown getting rid of blokes he doesn't like than punishing the poor performing players
    apart from ramien the others wont be here next year.
